The maintenance workers and clean-up crew at Congressional Country Club deserve a huge round of applause for preparing the storm-ravaged golf course in time for golfers to complete Saturday’s third round.
Just after 10pm on Friday evening, a fierce thunderstorm called a “Derecho,” which originated in the Chicago area, wreaked havoc in the nation’s capital. The storm goes at least 250 miles with winds at least 58 miles per hour or greater. In the Bethesda, Maryland, area, gusts reached 80mph.
